What We Do
Every Monday at 9pm. It’s £1 to enter and you can win a cash prize. All entrants get free chips!!!
We often have live bands, usually on a weekend night. Coming up in May we have The Martinisd on the 6th, Elvis on the 13th and then Kepler on the 24th
Open Mic night, hosted by Heather McVey, is on alternate Sunday evenings from 5pm – next one 1 May. New performers are always welcome, or you can come along to listen without taking part.
Bluegrass musicians meet here to play on the second Wednesday night of every month
Pool & Darts
The Six Bells hopes to enter a team for next season in the Cambridge Pool League. Matches are on a Thursday night and so if you think you would like to be part of the team please come along and let us know. The table is available at all other times for only 50p per game. We also have a dart board and darts available for customers
The Six Bells knitters meet every Wednesday from 7.30pm to around 9.30pm. We welcome all knitters, from absolute beginners to the most experienced. We were involved in the project to yarnbomb Mill Road bridge for the Winter Fair.
The Six Bells book club meets once a month on a Sunday evening. The next meeting is in June and the book is Union Street by Pat Barker. We meet at 7.30pm so if you would like to join us just come along – please bear in mind though that this is not the most serious of Book Clubs – we often end up dancing !
As well as our own book club, other clubs meet at the Six Bells on an ad hoc basis.
We host Art Exhibitions featuring work by local artists. There is no upfront fee to use our walls, but we ask artists to have an Opening Night Party for all their friends and we charge a commission of 20% of the value of any sales, half of which is donated to wintercomfort for the homeless.
Although we are not a sports bar we do love Horse Racing and every Saturday afternoon we watch all the racing on the TV – we’ve even been known to have a flutter!
Football and Rugby
We show games available on terrestrial tv
The Six Bells was awarded Community Pub of the Year (City) by Cambridge CAMRA in 2014. We provide a meeting space for Mill Road Bridges, a community group based in the area and for the Mill Road History Project. We also host Pitch & Meet meetings, the Humanist Group and Transition Cambridge. Other groups looking for a space should contact us by email or phone and we will try to accommodate you.
The Six Bells supports various charities but our main beneficiary is wintercomfort for the homeless. We have raised over £6400 for this cause over the last six years and hope to continue to do so.
